Many people who get piercings are very excited to buy new body jewelry and put it into their piercing to show it off. After your piercings are healed, you are able to change your jewelry. But this can prove to be quiet the task for some people. Luckily there are tools available to help change the jewelry out with ease.
When you are ready to change out your Captive Bead Ring a very useful tool is the ring opening pliers. Most male and female genital piercings often have Captive Bead Ring jewelry in them and these pliers are great for these type of piercings that are hard to reach. Ring opening pliers can help open the jewelry so that it can be removed and/or replaced. These pliers work very well with larger gauged jewelry. In the nose of these pliers there are little notches that are indented; these are there to help the jewelry fit snugly into the pliers so that they can open the ring properly and without damaging the jewelry.
One of the hardest parts of changing out a Captive Bead Ring is to maintain the circular shape while inserting the ball. Ring closing pliers are great to use and make changing jewelry a breeze. They come in different sizes. The small pliers are used for rings that are 7/16” or smaller. They also designed with grooves that help hold the beads while putting it into place. Larger pliers are mostly used for jewelry that is 5/8” or bigger. These as the name states are used for closing the circular ring tighter together so that the ball fits in correctly.
If you have many piercings and have difficulty changing the jewelry or hanging on to the beads, opening and closing pliers will be your new best friend. Do not forget to check out all of the different kind of tools we have available here at The Chain Gang.
